Last night up to 2000 people took part in a mass bike ride on Wednesday 22 February 2012 in central London, where a mile-long river of cyclists highlighted the need for radical change in many of London’s streets.

Organised and marshalled by iBikeLondon, Cyclists in the City and the London Cycling Campaign, the ride was timed to take place the evening before the important Parliamentary debate on cycle safety taking place at 2.30pm on Thursday 22 February.
This debate was prompted by the extensive coverage of safety issues by the The Timesnewspaper and the continuing road danger reduction work from other leading other campaigners.
During the ride BBC News interviewed campaigners live from Parliament Square, an LCC spokesperson talked live on BBC Radio London, and ITN’s London Tonight covered the ride live, including showing LCC’s radical redesign of Parliament Square to millions of TV viewers.
